White Bean Dip with Rosemary


I make hummus all of the time since we love it, especially my sons. So I decided to mix it up a bit and swap out the chickpeas for cannellini beans, and I'm happy I did. I created White Bean Dip with Rosemary, and it's so delicious that this is my husband's new favorite dip. I infused extra virgin olive oil with chopped fresh rosemary with the help of my microwave, and my food processor did the rest. I combined the beans, oil, lemon juice, garlic, and a little salt and pepper and processed until smooth. The result is a silky, creamy, flavorful dip that is as healthy as it is delicious.
